"Cresset" is now for Sale
I am rebuilding the 40 foot 1929 cutter "Cresset".
She was built by Gorge Askew in false Creek Vancouver B.C Canada.
She was owned by RVYC members until the 70s, now we are completely restoring her, we have refraimed, replanked and redecked well over half of her and I'm just getting rolling.
Next is the house recalking and then the scary one,that big hunk of cast iron and the bolts that hold it on.
Now this is bad enough on its own but in this case the floor timber bolts are gone too, and that means we need to take the ballast off the boat.
But for now I'm just not going to think about that and and focus my time and energy on making "Cresset" look like a boat again and less like a big pile of lumber.
You can track our progress at www.cresset.ca and feel free to make donations, boat buildings expensive and any thing helps.
